Philotimo Life Story

Maria, the founder of Philotimo Life, experienced the death of her mom at the age of two.

From an early age, she learned that talking about death was a huge no-no. People got really weird about it, and as a way to avoid uncomfortable situations, she hardly spoke about her mom. This included not speaking about the impact her death had on her life.

As she got older, she began to ask herself, "Why aren't I talking about this? Why aren't we talking about it?" This led to Philotimo Life – a place that breathes life into the conversation around death.

Philotimo Life now provides organizations with corporate grief training, creative workshops, leadership training, grief coaching, and policy restructuring to create a human-first work environment.
